Hillary Clinton quote of the week

Via the NY Daily News:

“Now, I could stand up here and say, ‘Let’s just get everybody together. Let’s get unified. The sky will open. The light will come down. Celestial choirs will be singing, and everyone will know we should do the right thing and the world will be perfect.'”

I think it’s safe to say that at this point she’s pulling out all the stops in advance of next Tuesday’s big primaries. In answer to Joe Gandelman’s question, I think this tactic is a mistake because she’s attacking Obama’s lofty rhetoric, which is one of his main draws, if his Britney Spears-like rallies are any indication.

When you have an unlikeable person like Hillary Clinton attacking the rhetorical skills of someone who has based a large part of his candidacy on the ability to successfully sway significant numbers of people with his misleading eloquence, the political reality is that such attacks rarely work. If the negative reactions of The Ususal Suspects is any indication, next Tuesday we’ll see that I’m right.
